Mr. Parsan (56 years old) is the man behind the Rajawali Purwokerto cinema posters. He has been very dedicated during his 31 years of painting movie posters, while also working as a parking attendant at the Rajawali Cinema. This biographical film invites us to witness Mr. Parsan’s daily life, which is not very different from the other Purwokerto locals. The film is a tribute to Mr. Parsan’s perseverance in his work. From this humble short film, we can see that the Indonesian film industry is not only supported by celebrated works but also by Mr. Parsan’s virtue. Mr. Parsan is a Rajawali Cinema legend, a legend of Purwokerto..
